    RETIRED. AND HAVING TIME OF MY LIFE
  1. On the ABCCC mission out of Vietnam we flew 12 hours flying circles. I did sleep some times
  2. I know that most FE and LM has flown the ci30. I will tell my story. we were coming back from the shuttle to CRB one night and the pilot wanted to do some touch and goes. He asked me and the load master to get in the pilot seat he got in the co pilot seat so I got in and gave it a try. I did 4 or 5 . I know the pilot really did most of the flying. I did like the go around. the load master got in the seat and he did a lot a lot better than I did
  3. I am a 100% disable vet and also retried Air force and have Tricare for life. last week I was reading in the air force times and saw were a 100%disable vet was told if he went to the VA. for a non service connected disability he would have to pay Tricare for life. I called Tricare for life and they said that was so some law was passed in 2013 I tried to get them to call the VA. They said they would not. I went to the Oklahoma City medical center and asked them about this and they told me they didn't care what Tricare care for life said If I came to the VA for a medical problem I would not have to pay any body. I tried to get them to call Tricare for life and tell they would not. They thought Tricare for life was wrong and told me not to worry about it. Has any of you all heard any thing about this.
  4. Has any of you came close to forgetting the nose gear pin in. I have to say I have once in Vietnam. Just after engine run check before take off I seen the pin on the back of the pilot seat. I told the pilot and got out and removed the pin. the tower called and wanted to know what we were doing the pilot told them we were checking a tire. I had ben flying with the pilot a long time and it didn't seem to bother him but it sure bother me.
  5. I have a DVD about the four horseman also It showed a c130B with 2 jet engines . I was flew the B model for 3 years at Clark and have never seen or heard of a B model with jet engines. has any one seen one.

    prop brake

    Prop brake. I was taught a little different . I was taught that when you made a windmill taxi start you were in the pitch lock range there fore the prop is pitch locked and the only way it can become un locked is to increase blade angel. and the nts system does that. when decend you have to move the throttles up to stop the native torque some times.

    prop brake

    I was reading your post about the prop brake and i thought about another queston. When you do a windmill taxie start you line up prop with cuf. that the puts the prop in the pitch range so the prop is is pitch locked when you start down the runway. how does it get un locked.

    Pay Days

    Last year us retires had to pay taxes on thirteen pay days do we pay on just eleven this year to get even
  9. I was having with-drawal pains I thought we had lost it for ever.There is nothing like talking to another C130 VET no body else would understand.
  10. Ihave been trying ti find herky birds.com for nearly a month and could not find it Ithought shut it down. Why didn't some one tell us about the change.
  11. FLAPS UP Once while flying in Vietnam We got a call to go to a place i never heard of. Our troops were being over run. when we got ther we couldn't make radio contact so we made a call in the blind and landed. After we landed i seen the bambo tower was blownup. Mortors were hiting about 150 yards be hind us . The load open the ramp and door and the troops came runing on till we were full and we took off. There were tall trees at the end of the run way as we got close to the end of the run way the pucker factor went way up we didn't clear the trees by much. The co polit started reading the after take ck list when he came to flaps up guees what they were up.
  12. I sure would like ti have a copy My address is Charles Fisher 50595 101st ST Stratford Oklahoma 74872 If you will give me your address i will send you a dvd I got from amazon . com it shows the transport of a elephant from a special campto Chu lai. it also has a lot of other things. The dvd is called C130 operations in Vietnam. I just bought it had to pay $29 for it.
  13. I was reading in the air force times we were going to have 13 pay days in 2011 because they were going to change the date we are going to get payed in 2012. They said we were going to get paid 12 times in 2012. I have read the statement over and over and i don't understand it. I know we are not going to get any extra money. Can anybody explain?
